This is a stunning cichlid that is originally from South America but is now found around the globe. It is certainly not a community fish. If it can fit in its large mouth then it will try to eat it! It is a large, territorial cichlid, especially to its own species.
It is a messy and voracious feeder and so filtration needs to be up to the job. You will need an aquarium of 200 gallons at least to house an adult.
